Highland Ridge RV recalls 1719 RVs for clogged fire extinguisher

WASHINGTON — Highland Ridge RV (Highland Ridge) is recalling certain 2010 Open Range, Residential and Rolling Thunder fifth wheels and 2010 Journeyer and Roamer recreational trailers. These vehicles are equipped with Kidde Plastic-Handle or Push Button ‘Pindicator’ Fire Extinguishers that may become clogged, preventing the extinguisher from discharging as expected or excessive force may be needed to activate the extinguisher. Additionally, in certain models, the nozzle may detach from the valve assembly with enough force that it could cause injury and also render the product inoperable.
